The workers at Dulles Airport – represented by Unite Here Local 23 -- had filed complaints with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority earlier this month after Sky Chefs failed to implement the new living wages that took effect January 1.

Today’s labor quote is by John Lennon:
"A working class hero is something to be."
